A1 Heritage Breed Farms is located in west central Ohio, close to Indiana, not far from I-75. Like us on Facebook (HeritageBreedFarms) and keep up with us via our website.

We started our farm for several key reasons. First and foremost we wanted to be sustainable. We feel that God has entrusted us as stewards of his creation. Being sustainable keeps our land and animals in the best possible health and returns the land in better shape than when we received it. Secondly, we wanted to raise the best tasting food because food should never have additives if its authentically good! Third, we wanted our children to grow up on a farm—who wouldn’t? Lastly, and most importantly, we wanted food that was good for you. Raising a young and growing family, eating healthy food was a no brainer which is why we grow everything using organic practices. All of these decisions lead us to raising the heritage breeds of: Dexter cattle, Large Black and Red Wattle hogs, Buckeye chickens, Olberhasi goats, Katahdin sheep, Bronze breasted turkeys, and several other mixed breeds of animals, most of which follow the heritage breed lines.

We currently have pastured freezer pork available. There is lots of bacon on our hogs—32 pounds on average! No wonder they call large blacks “bacon hogs.” These are our personal favorites, they taste EXCELLENT. In our opinion, there is no comparison in taste and flavor! Our Red Wattles are also featured pork on Slow Food USA's Ark of Taste.

Grass Fed Dexter beef is the fastest selling item on our farm. Dexters have excellent marbling for grass fed animals and have about a 20% larger rib eye for its size (my favorite cut! ) They are extremely docile and small. If you are used to ordering a half, then you want a whole; if you are used to a quarter, you want half a Dexter. This allows you to get all the premium cuts of meat without breaking the bank!

Pastured poultry. Please order ahead because we get our chicks in late winter/early spring. We can raise as many meat birds as our customers want, but we have to receive the orders early to get our preparations done ahead of summer. We also have pastured eggs layed by our favorite bird, the Buckeyes! What a great bird, raised in the same great state as its namesake!

Delivery available Columbus, Cincinnati, Toledo, Indianapolis and closer.

As always thank you for your business and remember to eat local and eat fresh!
God Bless.

Amazing Graze Farm started as a God-given desire to raise or grow as much of our own food as possible and as naturally as we could.

Our pastured poultry are in movable pens that are moved daily. They enjoy plenty of sunshine, fresh air, grass and bugs. Broilers are available from June through September. The pasture-raised turkeys are available the week of Thanksgiving. We use all-natural feeds and no hormones or additives. We have eggs year-round from free-range, healthy, happy chickens who have free run of our farm.

We raise grass fed beef and lamb. These are limited in number, so you need to get your orders in early.

We raise herbs and some veggies. We are not certified organic, but use no sprays or chemicals. Honey and beeswax are available at times. We make and sell soap in many varieties from all natural ingredients. Baked goods from freshly milled flour are also available.

We do a newsletter about our farm and products available. To receive the newsletter go to www.amazinggrazefarm.com/store and sign up there. We have a Utica address, but are actually right outside of Martinsburg. Many of our customers are from the Columbus area.

Arcadian Acres is a nearly 200-year-old family farm located in Athens County in SE Ohio. We are working on fully restoring the farm and saving critically endangered heritage breeds of cattle, chickens, pigs, turkey and eventually goats and sheep through eco-friendly, sustainable, non-certified organic, grass fed, and pastured methods. Endangered cows, chickens, pigs, etc. are in shockingly high numbers! Visit the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy to find out more.

We have decided to not become "certified" organic, but adhere rigorously to OEFFA and USDA standards and believe that the standards we set for ourselves exceed certification requirements. We feel that knowing where your food comes from, who raises it and how, provides better peace of mind than a "certified" sticker. Let us know what you think!

Arcadian Acres proudly offers:

Shares in our herdshare program, which consists of our milking herd of 100% grass fed organic (non certified) raw milk from 100% pure Dutch Belted cattle. Our herdshare contract was written specifically for Ohio's Revised Code, and has been upheld in Ohio courts. There is a one-time $75 fee to purchase a share, which we buy back from you if you leave the program. In addition, we charge a $35/month/share milking/boarding fee to care for your share of the herd. You collect your share (amounts vary depending on several factors) on a weekly basis of the herd's milk production (which is kept unpasteurized and non homogenized). Heifers or bulls are sometimes available as well. Call or email for details. ***Please note: We do NOT sell raw milk under any circumstance***

Red Wattle Hog. Acclaimed by the Arc of Taste and Slow Food movement as the best and most flavorful pork, we offer individual cuts, as well as all oddities, bones, fat and skin. If you're looking to fill your freezer, you can purchase a half or whole hog at a discounted price, then pay the butcher to process it to your specifications. Feeders and breeders are sometimes available. After weaning, pigs are rotated on pasture and finished in woods filled with oak, hickory, beech, walnut, sassafras, and pawpaw trees. Pigs receive a small supplement of soy-free certified organic grains and minerals.

Randall Cattle Rose Veal. A truly rare and wonderful treat, orders fill up fast. Raised on pasture with their mothers till weaning time (about 10 months), this is NOT the poorly kept, white veal people are used to. These animals live happy, socialized lives, and enjoy a well-rounded diet of milk AND grass. The iron from the grass turns the meat a rosy color, hence the name. Randall Rose Veal is in a category of its own–a must-try for any foodie or culinary connoisseur. Heifers and bull calves are occasionally available.

Heritage Eggs & Chicken. Mixed sampler eggs are $5/dozen when in stock. Whole chickens are available for $5/pound; this includes the neck, lungs, heart, and liver. We process them ourselves using the most gentle and humane methods. For a complete list/history of all of our poultry breeds, please visit our website.

We sell our products at the Athens County Farmers Market, East State Street, Athens, OH., Saturdays year round from 10am-1pm, and Wednesdays from April-November from 10am-1pm. We also sell on-farm, and from a private location in the Clintonville neighborhood of Columbus. Call or email to schedule a time to stop by either location to pick up your products. We can also deliver if it fits into our schedule, just ask for details.

Auburn Meadow Farm. It's true! Slow growing, old fashioned British breeds make some of the juiciest, most flavorful grass fed beef around. Meat rich with beefy flavor and fine, juicy texture – all on a grass only diet – special enough to be included on the Slow Foods Ark of Taste!

Our herd of rare American Milking Devons are about as close to their British roots as can be. We began our work raising cattle as a direct response to animal welfare, food quality and environmental issues. We follow non-certified organic methods and the cattle eat only grass and hay grown here at home. Our cows live a happy, natural life of grazing with their buddies, with plenty of spring water & free choice shelter from cold, rain & blazing sun.

In beef cattle, there is a documented relationship between high butterfat content in the milk and superior marbling in the beef. And, a scientific reason the flavor and texture of the meat from smaller breeds given longer to mature is so much finer. We have taken great pains to resist the temptation to breed for increased size and beef yield thereby preserving the rich milk that made these cows such a treasure in their native Devonshire, England.

You’ve heard of Devonshire cream, haven’t you? Well these girls invented it…

We are located just about an hour north of Pittsburgh, and ten minutes from Boardman, Ohio. We have limited amount of beef available each summer and are excited to share it with you. Don't miss out; when it’s gone, it’s gone until next year!

Autumn Harvest Farm, owned and operated by Marcus and Beth Ladrach and family, has grown as a family farm since 1946. We raise All Natural grass-fed beef, vegetables, and hay. All 230 acres of the farm have been certified organic by the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA) since 1996. All crops and pastures are certified organic.

Located in the rich agricultural landscape of Wayne County, Ohio, Autumn Harvest Farm is only 30 minutes from Medina, 45 minutes from Akron or Canton, less than an hour from Cleveland, and an hour and a half from Columbus.

Autumn Harvest Farm specializes in raising All Natural Angus cross-bred beef cattle on certified organic pastures with no grain or hormones. A rotational grazing program regularly moves the cattle through paddocks containing grass mixed with clover and alfalfa so that the animals have a nutritionally rich blend of pasture crops to eat. We take pride in raising beef calves up to full market weight on a 100% grass-fed diet, an effort that is reflected in the excellent quality and taste of the beef.

Grass-fed beef has rightfully gained a reputation for having higher nutritional value, less fat, and fewer calories that grain-fed beef, and we have found that their rotational grazing pattern contributes to the health of the cattle as well as to the health of the farm.

Farmers Markets: We attend the Downtown Wooster Farmers Market, June through October, Saturdays 8am- 12:00pm.

Grocery Stores: We sell our products at Local Roots Market, 140 S Walnut Street in downtown Wooster, OH.

Beech Meadow Farm currently offers exclusively 100% grass fed beef raised year-round in rotationally grazed pastures.

Our beef is from our herd of purebred American Lowline Angus. These cattle are the definition of a heritage breed as they are from a herd whose traits have not been altered by selective breeding since the 1940s. Cattle prior to the 1940's were well adapted to marbling when raised in pastures or on range without the use of grain. Thus our genetic line provides great tasting, tender well-marbled beef that alters many of our customer's perceptions of what grass fed beef can be. They are also smaller, more docile and easygoing than many of today's breeds and hybrids, which makes them ideal for working with closely on a daily basis. It also leads to a smaller split-quarter than with hybrids which can reduce the total cost to purchase from us

Our goal is to continue to improve the quality of the ecosystem with which we work. It is intuitive that humane treatment of our animals produces the best quality product for our tables and so we treat ours with respect. We believe that good food provides for good health and that sustainable, grass-based farming offers the most effective way to provide it.

Berger's Green Vista Farm is owned and operated by the Berger family with the health and comfort of the animals as a top priority. We are a 100% grassfed to finish, all natural beef farm. Located in the rolling countryside of northeast Ohio, Green Vista offers a local source of gourmet grassfed beef and pastured poultry. We are 30 minutes from Medina, 45 minutes from Akron or Canton, and less than an hour from Cleveland.

We offer 100% grassfed and all natural beef by the whole, half, split half, and ground beef by the pound along with selected cuts individually priced. The chickens, which are raised in mobile pasture pens, are moved daily and offered organic feed. These broilers are sold as split and whole dressed birds. See our website for more information.

We attend the Medina Farmers Market, May through October, Saturdays from 9 AM to 1 PM.

We find no reason to use artificial fertilizers, hormones, antibiotics, insecticides or herbicides. We pasture all the animals as much as possible year around. Our cattle are rotated through the pastures on a regular basis to the benefit of both plants and animals. When extreme conditions of cold or mud require us to temporarily bring the cattle onto a straw pack, they receive dry stored forages.

We encourage you to stop by, visit and see firsthand how we work to make our beef the healthiest, most enjoyable eating experience possible. We absolutely love what we do and thank God for blessing us in this manner and for giving us the opportunity to share it with others.

Callan Cattle. Co. Since 1996, “We feed people” or help them feed themselves with 100% grass fed, organic (non-certified) Texas Longhorn beef cattle.

Callan Cattle Co. markets America’s healthiest breed of cattle, live, or in see-thru frozen vac-packs. CCC doesn’t use extra hormones, or antibiotics. Longhorns rarely get sick due to their healthy “natural genetic outlook” on life. Texas Longhorn cattle multiplied in the Southwest without Man’s help or interference from the 1400s to the 1890s. They were the first bovines on the American Continent, brought over by the Spanish. When they got loose from being stolen or Indian raids chasing them away, their survivability in the wild was Nature Bred into their DNA with 400 years of natural selection.

Callan Cattle Co. Texas Longhorns eat grass, browse or locally baled hay from chemical-free fields. CCC uses efficient grass and browse eating cattle. Texas Longhorns turn 6 pounds of grass into a pound of muscle gain without the excess back fat, needing to be trimmed off, common to “other” cattle.

The proof is seeing the carcass on a hook in the cooler. If others (upon request) can’t show you a comparison picture to Longhorn of their beef hanging in the cooler, they can tell you anything and not have to answer for it. And yes, Longhorn beef is tender. We don’t “run’em on the Trail” anymore. We’ve had compliments on our beeves for 15 years.

Give us a call. We’re five miles north of Newark, OH on State Route 657 (Marion Rd), between Johnstown, Granville and Utica, OH and 35 to 45 minutes from Columbus, OH. Look for the big Callan Cattle Co. sign with the Texas Longhorn cow logo. Cattle of all colors, eating Ohio’s Natural Grass. Delivery to central Ohio. Arranged delivery beyond central Ohio.

You Are What You Eat, Eats.

Canal Junction Natural Meats & Farmstead Cheese is a grass based farming operation where we believe in raising our animals for food the way that God intended them to be raised. We have a dairy herd along with beef, pork, lamb, broilers, turkeys and layers. We direct market all of the products that we produce on the farm. We recently started to make Raw Milk cheese from our own milk.

The dairy, beef, and lambs are 100% grassfed. They do not receive any grain. The pork, broilers, turkeys and layers all are raised on pasture and are given supplemental feed. The broilers and turkeys are moved every 24 hours to another section of pasture. The layers are free ranged within the paddocks that we have the cattle in.

We have very heavy clay soil that at one time was a swamp (The Great Black Swamp). It has been drained off since the second half of the 19th century. What was left behind was a soil that is extremely high in naturally occurring minerals. Through proper utilization of grass farming we capitalize on the available nutrients for grazing animals, which in return makes the final product more nutrient dense. It has been said that food grown on heavy clay soil is some of the best tasting in the world. Find out for yourself today. Order some cheese or stop by the farm and buy some meat to try for yourself.

We sell the raw milk cheese and meat off the farm. The meat is in nice sized small packages and the cheese is in approximately 3/4 lb packages. Bigger blocks of cheese are available, just ask. The cheese we will ship, the meat must be bought through the farm store. We do have a wholesale price for the cheese for any retailers or restaurant owners. Cheeses available: Cheddar, Colby, Jack, Garlic & Herb, Jack & Dill, Pepper Jack, Italian Herb, Black Swamp Gouda, Miami Erie Canal Swiss and Wabash Erie Canal Gruyere. Canal Junction Blue will be ready in late March of '08.

Meat is also offered in bulk. Beef is available by the whole, half, quarter, or half of a half. Pork and lamb are offered by the whole or half. Unless other arrangements are made, it is the customer's responsibility to pick up bulk orders from the butcher shop once the order is finished.

Colonial Classics Farmstead Cheese is all natural raw milk aged cheddar cheese. We are producers of grass-fed milk from cows that are efficient grazers and can thrive on pasture. Our small family farm consists of 252 acres with plenty of pasture and stockpiled forage for 75 head of dairy animals.

Inspired by the stories, techniques and traditions of our 105-year-old grandmother, we began turning our raw milk into cheddar cheese in 2004. We are licensed to use our own milk to produce a Farmstead Cheddar Cheese with varying degrees of sharpness and flavor. We use the leftovers from our cheese and milk production to add to the free-range diet of some chickens, turkeys, and pigs. We have a limited number of chickens, turkeys or pigs available for sale and "scratcher" eggs or "free-range" eggs are available at times.

We began farming in 1994 by building the first "New Zealand Style" milking parlor in the state of Ohio and practicing rotational seasonal dairying. We have not used any pesticides, fertilizers, sprays, or any chemicals of any kind on our land. We use absolutely no hormones, and do not push for production in our cows.

Cooney Creek Farm is a 250 acre family farm nestled in the hills of Lawrence County, Ohio. We are located in Wheelersburg, Ohio, 100 miles south of Columbus; 30 miles from Huntington, WV; 20 miles from Ashland, KY. The name comes from the largest stream going through the farm.

Cooney Creek is the outlet for 27,000 acres of National Forest land that borders us on three sides. The land has been farmed since the early 1700s to produce meat, dairy, fruit and crops for local consumption. Corn and soybean, beef, pork and turkeys were the main products until Jim and Cindy Yancy purchased the land in 1996 for Quarter Horses. The years of creating more grassland and developing mountain springs to supply stock have seen the operation focus on holistic, sustainable practices.

We now have a few good horses who graze along with our beef herd. Red Devon genetics have been used since the first cow was AI’d by Cindy and are the basis for our gentle, thrifty cattle. Our herd is now Red Devon influenced and registered Red Devon. Each year we get closer to our goal of year round grazing. Our stock thrive on natural forages and are supplemented only with hay and minerals. Only emergent care medicines are used to treat injury. We are not certified organic but follow many organic practices. We do embrace sustainable and holistic principles and have where selected as Outstanding NRCS Cooperators of the year.

Processing is done at a USDA facility and beef is dry aged for at least 14 days, cut to customer order, clear vacuum-wrapped and quick frozen. We sell by the cut, halves and whole beef. Beef consistently grades at high select to low choice, providing wonderful eating. Discover for yourself what beef was like prior to industrialization.

Farm visits are welcome with an appointment. We will be granting hunting leases in the future for deer, turkey. Call to place your order or for more information.

The Flying J Farm was started five years ago with the goal and motto: Restoring the land, the buildings, and the people. Our plan and hope was to restore health to ourselves and others through growing our own food, and better nutrition and lifestyle. We have been certified organic by OCIA and OEFFA for three years.

We raise grassfed, chemical-free Hereford cattle and try to have freezer beef in all cuts available year-round. The cows graze rotationally to maximize the pasture and their time on greens. We also raise organic food-grade corn, soybeans, and hard (make bread flour) and soft winter wheat. We raise hay for the cows, but feed them only what we need to get them through the winter. We also grow a large organic vegetable garden with help from interns and volunteers (always looking for more) and have a farm market as well as a CSA. Products from the garden are available during the growing season. We also make maple syrup and have it available year-round.

We do four major events each year to encourage urban folks to visit the farm and see how food is raised. These include a Maple Sugar Festival in February, a Mushroom Hunt in April, a farm tour and taste of local food in July, and a Fall Harvest Festival in October. We have some five miles of trails for horseback riding, hiking or cross-country skiing through woods and around lakes, ponds, and streams. We will soon have a B&B and we do small conferences, retreats, and concerts. We are always open to visitors if they call ahead.

Golden Hill Farms goes to grass finished beef.

Golden Hill Farms is in northwest Pennsylvania, about 40 miles south of Erie, 80 miles north of Pittsburgh, and about 2 hours from both Cleveland and Buffalo. We are 4 miles east of I-79 off exit 141.

For over 25 years we at have been producing and selling top quality show cattle, with the remaining calves being sold to feedlots for grain finishing. Since we are a grass and hay farm, this year we decided to keep 30 of our top feeders to finish on grass.

During much of this time we have also operated a meat processing plant. The animals in this program will be slaughtered under federal inspection and we will be processing the meat ourselves, in our facility on our farm. Additionally, the only meat we will be processing will be our grass fed beef.

This year the grass finished cattle will have an average dressed weight of 600–700 pounds. They will be sold by the half (300–350 pounds) or in bundles.

We have designed 7 different bundles that we hope will meet everyone's needs. The contents and price of each can be seen on our website.

  • Large Family Bundle (60 lbs.)
  • Steak Lovers Bundle (15 lbs.)
  • Economy Bundle (20 lbs.)
  • Ground Beef Bundle (25 lbs.)
  • Family Bundle (30 lbs.)
  • Roast Lovers Bundle (15 lbs.)
  • Sampler Bundle (15 lbs.)

LittleFoot Family Farms, located 10 miles north of Marysville, Ohio, provides fresh, high quality food raised using natural methods. As a growing young family we understand the importance of homegrown food.

Currently we raise pastured poultry. Our chickens reside outside in movable floorless pens (Salatin style). This gives the chickens access to fresh air, sunlight, and green grass 24/7.

Menagerie Farms, located 50 miles west of Toledo, Ohio, offers grassfed beef, pork, poultry, eggs and lamb. Our cattle are pastured on OCIA-certified organic land, utilizing marginal ground that it too hilly (erodable) for crop farming.

While the cattle themselves are not certified organic, we administer no drugs or hormones. Our chickens likewise are on organic grass, supplemented with organic grains, and are drug and hormone-free.

Beef is sold summer and fall by the side, split-side, or canned. Chicken is available summer and fall; eggs year-round. Delivery is available.

Millgate Farm raises grass fed beef. They are on pasture in the summer and balage in winter. They also get salt and kelp with a trace mineral called selenium which is deficient in our soil.

We also raise pure blood Berkshire pork. Along with a diet of roots, grass, acorns and whatever else they can forage in the woods, they get a ground diet of barley, oats, alfalfa, organic mineral mix, salt, kelp and flax seed. They do not get any corn or soybeans. The feedback from customers, after eating our pork has been a pretty consistent: "That's the best tasting, juiciest pork I've ever eaten."

We also raise eggs with the same diet and no corn or soy.

Pastured Providence Farmstead is a small, sustainable, diversified, pasture-based farm located in the beautiful hills northeast of Chillicothe, OH. Our heritage-breed animals are raised without any growth hormones, antibiotics, or chemicals, instead receiving plenty of fresh air and sunlight which keeps them extremely healthy.

We graze our cows and sheep over lush pastures using daily rotations, and both our egg laying chicken and turkey flocks are completely free-range. Our pork is rotated through large paddocks that include both woods and pasture, allowing them to root and dig for nuts, berries and tubers. Our meat chickens are raised in bottomless structures that are moved to fresh grass daily, allowing them access to pasture, worms, and bugs while protecting them from the weather and predators.

Both our cows and sheep are 100% grass-fed and finished, never receiving any grain. This grass-finished beef and lamb is incredibly lean, delicious, and truly healthy for you. The animals that are fed grain as a supplement to their daily helping of grass and hay (pigs, chickens, turkeys) receive a non-GMO feed sourced from a local farmer less than 45 minutes away.

We attempt to raise all our animals from heritage breed stock, using The Livestock Conservancy as our guide. Whether it is Red Poll cattle, St. Croix sheep, Large Black hogs, Narragansett turkeys or Buckeye chickens, we are doing our part to support and sustain these important breeds. And don’t forget, they are all absolutely delicious!

Pastured Providence Farmstead is dedicated to the principle of transparency. If you want to make sure your food is being produced in an ethical, humane, beyond organic, ecologically sound, pasture-based manner, then please make plans to stop by the farm and see for yourself. You can also check us out on our website or on Facebook. You'll love what you see, and you'll love our products!

Providence Farm is an 82-acre family-owned, USDA Organically Certified farm in NE Indiana (a short drive from the Ohio state line) that produces small quantities of superior quality all-natural pastured meat (beef and chicken).

Our farm has been chemical and pesticide-free for nearly 27 years. All of our meat animals are raised on organic pasture in the fresh air and sunlight. We raise 100% Angus beef cattle, individually selected for superior grass genetics to ensure the highest quality grass-fed beef. They fatten naturally (without grain) on the broad variety of fresh forages contained in our pastures. Our beeves receive no grain, growth hormones, steroids, antibiotics, wormers, animal by-products, growth promoters, or feed additives. We offer Redmond salt, sea kelp and natural source minerals on a free-feed basis. Our chickens are also pastured out in the fresh air with plenty of sunlight. Our chicks are started with organically certified grain. Their foraging diet consists of grasses, legumes, bugs and grain that contains no hormones, steroids, antibiotics, or animal by-products.

Our farm is small enough that we are able to put a great deal of emphasis on the health of our land, our soils, our forages, and our animals—and that careful management undeniably converts to the health and goodness of our beef and chicken. We believe that it is our role to be good stewards in caring responsibly and respectfully for the land and the animals entrusted to us by God.

We offer freezer beef in whole, half, and quarter portions in mid-September, and fresh whole jumbo roasters mid-summer and late-summer. We generally have a supply of ground "All Cut Burger" year-round. Our meats are delicious, tender, flavorful, loaded with the CLA that comes from fresh green grasses and legumes, and (bonus!) good for you!

Grass-finished beef is also coming available here on the farm in the near future.

Our dairy herd is a mix of breeds. We have been using A2A2 breeding, so the herd is producing a lot of A2A2 milk now, but not 100%. The herd is grass fed, with some partially sprouted barley and molasses available at milking to help balance the protein in the grass. (The dairy cows receive no more than 5 pounds of barley per day, and we mix in 2 gallons of organic molasses for the entire herd of 41 cows.)

Sweet Meadows is pleased to offer a wide selection of 100% grassfed beef and lamb. We also provide pastured pork, free range chicken, and brown eggs from pastured hens. All of our animals are grown outdoors on lush green pasture in Southeastern Ohio without the use of antibiotics, hormones or steroids. Our pigs and chickens are supplemented with natural grains grown on the farm.

Sweet Meadows has grown from a small stand at the farmers market to a full-service natural/organic grocery. Located on Maple Avenue in Zanesville, we offer all of our meat in individual cuts as well as halves and wholes. We support as many local farmers as possible by carrying local honey and produce, grass-fed raw milk cheeses, non-homogenized milk, and much much more.

Our retail location is open six days a week all year round. We welcome visitors to our farm (please call ahead to schedule a tour).

Triple Creek Ranch offers: raw milk and dairy products through herdshare, pastured chickens, pastured pork, free-range duck and chicken eggs, occasional grass-fed beef, and produce such as red raspberries, blackberries and asparagus in season.

Triple Creek Ranch is located in Waynesville, 7 miles south of Xenia just a couple miles off of Highway 42. We are just a short drive from Dayton, 1 hour south of Columbus and 1 hour north of Cincinnati. We can make deliveries to Xenia or to Cincinnati.

We began our family farm with the goal of providing healthy, wholesome, chemical-free, natural food for our family. Once other families learned of our endeavor, they requested to receive the fruits of our labor with the resulting benefits. Our farm has grown to meet the needs of our “extended family”—our customers!

We offer all natural raw milk from our Milking Shorthorn and Brown Swiss cows through a herdshare program. We also offer cream, butter and artisan cheeses made from our raw milk. We have free-range eggs for our herdshare families and we also offer pastured chickens, pork and, occasionally, grass-fed beef.

The pigs are fed cow’s milk twice daily. Our milk cows are fed a custom-mixed feed (about 3 pounds/day) and are on pasture the majority of the year. We employ rotational grazing for pasture management. The animals are fed our own hay, which we grow, cut and bale. We do not feed our animals antibiotics, or give them growth hormones. We employ organic practices, but are not certified. We feed both non-GMO and custom mixed feeds to our animals and they are all lovingly cared for. They all have shelter in inclement weather. We believe in being good stewards of what God has provided to us.

The pastured chickens are usually available year-round, the same with the milk and dairy products. We take orders for pork, as available, and usually have a waiting list for beef.

Most families drive to our farm to pick up their milk and additional products, but we can make arrangements for delivery, if possible.

At Walnut Hill Farm, we are dedicated to raising high quality meat the old fashioned way. We raise grass-fed Angus beef, lamb and pastured poultry (summer months only—broilers and turkeys).

All of our animals are grass-fed on actively rotated pasture which is never sprayed, and fed high quality hay and round bail silage all winter. Excepting supplemental grains for the poultry, none of our stock is ever grained. We use no chemicals, antibiotics or hormones in any phase of our operation, and pride ourselves on producing a high quality product in a sustainable fashion.

We encourage you to taste the difference (the 'good for you' is a bonus!).

White Clover Farm is a 300 acre family owned and operated farm located in Hillsboro, Ohio. We produce 100% grassfed beef raised on our farm from birth to market.

We use no antibiotics, hormones, or pesticides. Our black angus cattle are on pasture year around. We practice rotational grazing with cattle moved to fresh pasture every 3-5 days. They graze stockpiled tall fescue, supplemented by alfalfa/orchardgrass hay during the winter. The cattle have access at all times to minerals and natural spring water. Wooded areas provide shade in the summer and protection from the wind in the winter.

The beef is processed at a USDA inspected facility for your protection. Sold by the 1/4 or 1/2 carcass with delivery in the greater Cincinnati area.
